Many of audience in costume, which my friend described to me. I wasn't able to see the lyrics scrolling by, but remembered about half of the songs. When we went in, we were handed a small bag of props to use during certain scenes. A woman in an old formal dress went up and explained the process, props, what to use when, various things and did some practice signing with us. She also explained about "chair-ography." Like choreography for dancers. But when doing the hand jive and a few other movements we had to keep them small or we'd jab the people beside us. So we have several run throughs of "chair-ography." Young John Travolta. It was obvious where Saturday Night Fever started here first. And some of the names... One of the song writers was Barry Gibb of the BeeGees, we were easily able to identify which songs. On one song, the lead guitarist was peter Frampton. Sid Caesar was the then-younger athletic coach. He showed up in Seattle when the musical Hairspray was being developed before going to Broadway. There was Eve Arden as school principal, and friend and I were racking our brains for title of TV show she'd been in. We knew our moms would know, even through the dementia both suffer. But finally my friend remembered "Our Miss Brooks," and she was a secretary. It was a very early version of "Mary Tyler Moore" show or Marlo Thomas in "That Girl." Funny that now John Travolta is in movie "Hairspray." Now I want the sing-a-long version of "The Sound of Music" to return. That was even more fun!
